MUTATE AW13 / DIEGO ZÚÑIGA

[ M U T A T E . AW13 ] 
www.diegozuniga.com

Twitback

The homonymous firm of the Mexican designer returns this Fall/Winter 2013 with MUTATE. The starting point is the beetle, an insect that throughout history has been an inspiration for industrial design, architecture and the military world. With eight all-black looks, MUTATE is characterized by oversize pieces, tailored quality and sporty touches. It surprises us with dynamic and original cuts, mesh details, and for the first time in the brand’s history there is a couple of functional accessories (cap and backpack) to create an outfit that reflects the concept perfectly. The collection? Wide-cut blazers with relaxed lapels, sweaters with wide sleeves, pants with big cargo-like pockets, and short wide pants. The textures reflect inspiration and are mixed with the designer’s characteristic black-over-black detail. The fortress, intellect, routine, and strength of the contemporary man is what emerges from this proposal from Zúñiga.

His neo-surrealist/cartoon abstract paintings have earned him the respect of esteemed collectors worldwide while his wildly popular line of custom silk screened & hand painted tee-shirts are worn by a wide and varried range of all age hipsters willing to worship at the house of LaForge working it on the runway known as life.

A Shaded View On Perfume Fiction: Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men Text by Jarrod Cuthrell

A187l7m95kjapp0

 

Top notes: Bergamot, guaiac wood

Heart notes: Vetiver, cedar, Sichuan pepper

Base notes: Cacao, amber

 

It is a very late evening, cool air, a slight wind blowing. A man is at a party, a very high class party. A live band performs outside, playing soft music. Everyone is dressed very formally, standing around a pool, which is set in marble. The must is barely audible, sort of surreal, women laughing to themselves is barely heard over the bubbling of the hot tub they sit in. They drink. Everyone drinks, and has been all evening, but no one is drunk. The only effect is the warm glow everyone has. The girls watch the men from the jacuzzi, talking amongst each other. A man conversates with another gentleman in a dimly lit corner of the party. He is mysterious, and though he talks casually to this man, he recalls having the lady of the house just moments before. He recalls both of them, hurriedly sneaking away, no one seeing either. He recalls them having each other, quickly, quietly, darkly. He remembers reentering the party, unashamed.

ARCADIA by MANDANA TOWHIDY

Tumblr_m1onxsSbwU1qzirdc

Alot of young designers reference the late 80's/early 90's Hollywood Metal scene, but no-one has really delved into the lives of the kids who populated it. That is until now. This is going to be THE must read book for Summer 2012. Written by my very correct friend Mandana Towhidy, it perfectly captures the essence of one of my all time favorite scenes in a very modern and not at all retro way. Here's the teaser -

ARCADIA —- a Metal novel by Mandana Towhidy
(perfect bound/paperback, 214 pages)

Populated by rockers, Deadheads, misfits, skinheads, Goths, surfers, preppies, cheerleaders, and jocks, ARCADIA by Mandana Towhidy is a Fast Times at Ridgemont High for the Metal years.  It's an honest story of Ronnie and her friends (Ezze, Tess, Ash, and Syd), teen girls in the heart of the Hollywood Metal scene during the late 80s/early 90s, ruling it in their own way, with or without the boys, and having the time of their lives: scrounging dimes for burritos, ducking the hallway narcs, getting stoned in the parking lot, and hitching rides to the next party to get wasted, all before noon on a school day. And in the world of Hollywood where more is all you need, Ronnie discovers happiness in Metal and friends and learning to see through the games and the "perfect-ness" of it all. Long Hair Rocks...Again!

the book release date is JULY 8TH, 2012
